Milngavie folk turned out in force to listen to local MP Jo Swinson give her views on the up coming independence referendum.

As part of her Road to Referendum campaign, Ms. Swinson held the fourth of her meetings in Milngavie Town Hall last week - the other three have been in Bearsden, Kirkintilloch and Bishopbriggs.

The meeting saw a wide range of topics discussed including Scotland’s future membership of the European Union and possible changes to pensions in an independent Scotland.

Ms. Swinson said: “Many thanks to all those who attended last week’s lively discussion in Milngavie. We had a variety of interesting questions from both sides of the argument, with issues around the European Union particularly exercising questioners.

“I hope those who attended left with clearer information with which to make up their minds. I look forward to meeting more local people at my next events, so please do spread the message about these meetings to friends and relatives.

“A vote for Scotland to remain part of the UK is a vote for more secure finances and a stronger presence on the world stage. With further powers set to be devolved to the Scottish Parliament, we can have the best of both worlds by voting against independence on September 18.”

All the remaining meeting start at 7pm. Details: Tuesday 29 July, Caldwell Halls, Torrance;

Thursday 28 August, Lenzie Public Hall; Friday 5 September, Baldernock Church Hall, Balmore.
